Advertised as a “dietary supplement “, this product is really a natural energy pill of Tijuana-esque proportions. (Think: “Diet pills, I got Diet pills here”) My favorite part of the bottle is the quote “The name “up your gas” is in no way meant to suggest or imply that the product should be used as an alternative to illicit street drugs.

I really like this product. It gives me copious amounts of energy, while avoiding, in most parts, that jitteriness associated with caffeine pills. I practically lived on these things back when I used to work 90 hour weeks at RGIS. No adverse effects with up to 300% suggested dosage. I did notice some tolerance after some time though, and effects are intensified after abstaining for a good amount of time. Up Your Gas can be obtained at numerous health food and vitamin stores, as well as countless websites, in bottles of 30 or 60 tablets. For five to fifteen dollars, and a real bargain, IMHO. Produced by National Health Products, Orlando, FL.
